Information: The Story about Stefan the newsman tells the normal life of a person who has a contrary job to his personality.

The loss of his old flat disturbs this peacefully thoughts and force him on the street and in a new surrounding.

So in the end he overtake the fear with his talismans and connect himself to his wishes. So he create a real himself, but this person now is dangerous.
Concept/Production: The aim at this production was the realization of this story with an improvised structure. The actors & the camera only get keywords and places for the shooting. The characters were defined in the beginning and the actor had to fill the scene with the narrative action and his own words. The cameraman got light equipment to follow the actor easily and can react quickly on his actions. Furthermore the camera was defined with some key pictures to stay in shape of the continuity. This method forces the movie to develop itself during the shootings. This method is great to get associative acting without directing the shootings too narrow. During the editing the story gets in final state and the whole production comes without second shootings afterwards.
Cast/Crew: For the production it was therefore necessary to have very good people. We get the actors from the theater in Linz and the crew from art university.
Release: The final movie comes on DVD and gets more detailed information about the production, the people involved and some behind the scenes.
